Describe the students at your school.

A mixed bunch, some really into it, some rather lazy and apathetic, but many seem to enjoy most classes ultimately.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't worry so much how good the school ranks for an undergrad program. Any school is what you make of it.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The quality of the track program. Most discussion is about the times of the other athletes I ran with, where we competed and how well we did.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

School has numerous extra-curricular activities. Weekends are fun. Lots of alcohol consumed but there are dance parties so a person has options but i'd say that around 90% of this campus drinks. School has great programs in economics, sciences, art and languages.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It's very expensive at this school. There are scholarship opportunities but, as a poor person, I would recommend considering a public university. The perks about coming here are a very active campus in extra curricular activities as well as weekend events. Also, the professors are pretty involved with their students. For financial reasons, I could not study abroad for a semester so my advisor organized a summer for me to backpack through mexico for under 500 dollars. Overall, my college experience at Ohio Wesleyan has been an amazing experience. I am a senior with a 3.0 GPA who is involved in mens rugby, coaches women's rugby, head the big brother/big sister program, student government, intramural basketball, and Black Men of the Future. My point is that a student has the option of doing WHATEVER they desire here while maintaining a good GPA. I definitely recommend coming here if the prospective student is okay with living in a very small town with few places to shop, purchase food and hang out at. Great experience in a tiny town.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People who want to attend a school with large, unfriendly school should not come here. If I miss a class, my professor will ask me about it the next day. Largest class i've had is around 20 people. As a senior, the biggest class i'm in has around the same number.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Made sure to visit schools, and preferably do an overnight visit. There is a huge difference between attending a small school and a large school, and between a liberal arts school and a state school. If you have an intellectual interests, a liberal arts environment is the best way to fulfill them. When you get to college, one of the best and overlooked ways to make friends is to join clubs, whether they be volunteer groups, political organizations, or just about hobbies. That is the easiest way to meet people who share your interests.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Food service- sometimes the quality isn't great and the hours are sometimes inconvenient.

What kind of person should attend this school?

People who like to learn about a lot of different things, want personal attention from professors, and want to go to a small school.

Describe the students at your school.

Overall, my classmates are friendly, engaging, and unique individuals who are not afraid to be themselves and they are well-rounded students, working hard in and out of class while balancing extracurricular activities, especially service-oriented projects.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The best thing you can do when making your final decision is visit the colleges that are your top choices to get a feel of what the campus is like. For the best experience, go when school is in session, visit a class and eat a meal in a dining hall. In the end, what you get out of college is going to be what you put into it, so don't be afraid to take advantage of as many opportunities as possible. Be responsible, but have fun because the years fly by quickly on a campus environment where so much is going on!

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

If you can't find something fun to do, you're just not looking hard enough because something is always going on and groups are always welcoming toward new members. So don't be shy; just hop in and get involved.

Research and high percentage of acceptance into graduate/professional schools/programs.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The academic side of campus is separate from the residental side which is a nice separation between home/school. The students are involved and friendly. We have an SEM (scanning electron microscope) which is rare for the use of undergraduate students.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When you visit a school, trust your gut instinct. If you feel a good vibe about a school and can picture yourself being happy attending there, take those feelings strongly into consideration. Set goals to achieve in college and then do your best to meet or exceed these. Reward yourself by doing well. Be driven and balance academics with fun! Enjoy college...these are the best days of your early life.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you contact the financial aid office in advance, Admission Counselors are very understanding of economic situations and are willing to find the extra money to get your son/daughter to study at this school. Get them to the college that offers you the most help as well as the best facilities in relationship to your son/dauther's interests. Always dont forget to get a weekend out of your schedule to visit the school personally with your teenager and stop and talk to people about the college. I strongly believe that parents and prospective student alike will have a better understanding of the school and will consequently know if they want to spend the next 4 years of their lives at that institution... Good luck in your search process.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The best way to discover your ideal college is to narrow it down to colleges that have your intended major, or majors that interest you. Then you need to visit the schools. Often just going to a school will knock it off your list, or make you want to got there. Once you have chosen your college, make the most of all the opportunities that you are given. Meet people from all over the world and learn from them, not just in classroom settings. Go to other religions' services and eat native foods from countries you might not have ever heard of. Take advantage of the chance to speak with people that know how to make it in the real world. Do not be too concerned about grades; be concerned with learning material that is actually going to make a difference in your life.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Ohio Wesleyan is a liberal arts school known for its hard classes and small amount of students, but is very diverse in cultures and very helpful with future studies and jobs.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I believe education to be one of the most important things to receive in life, and choosing the right school is a very crucial part of being successful. In my experience, a small liberal arts school was the best decision for me. There are fewer students and fewer distractions, but life-changing professors and classes that require hard work are definitely part of the bargain. Each of my classes, whether I liked them or hated them, have taught me more than any high school class had ever taught me. I would say, take a new challenge and get out of your comfort zone. Go far away and really live on your own. Study abroad through the school's programs. Do as much as possible while you have the time. Be active and enjoy every second of it. Use your education to its fullest. You will succeed if you try.

What's unique about your campus?

I think this school has numerous qaulities that make it great. I suppose the best thing is that the professors know everyone in their classes and you get to know them very well.
